I believe life i a precius thing, you shouldn’t waste it.
I’ve learned what most realiza only when it’s too late. I’ve learned this through experiences most have only read about.
5 years ago I was diagosed with a braintumor. The discovery devestated my family and changed all our lives.
I was scheuled for surgery the next Mon. and we struggled through the weekend as best we could.
I went into surgery scared as a kitten,I clung to my parents for dear life.
My parents and I waited what seemed like hours for them to call e back to prep fo surgery.
When they finally called my name I strode to the back, still scared as could be.
Once I put on the gown and the socks i was only a matter of time beforemy life was in the hands of a surgeon,.
When the nurse came to take me to the operating room I hugged my parents tight. The nurse led me through a maze of hallways to the OR.
I climbed on to the table. They strapped an oxygen mask to my face. I slowly fell into a deep slumber brathing in the bubble gum air.
My life was never the same after that weekend. I had chemotherapy every friday for 2 ears and constant check-ups.
This is why life is such a precious thing. You never know when it will b taken away. This I believe.
